Scientists Pg 2


Years 1700



Do we really need proof that God exists.

If so, for some people, "Oh ye, of little faith", then science is the proof. Yes, science proves the existence of God.


Science has always pointed to God and science proves the existence of God.


Scientists through the ages have wisely sought out knowledge from painstakingly systematized observation and study. And where does all this knowledge come from? It comes from God. "Because the Lord giveth wisdom and out of his mouth cometh prudence and knowledge." PRV 2:6 

Many scientific discoveries have been made by Catholic scientists to benefit man and society.

She was a devout Catholic and wrote extensively on the marriage between intellectual pursuit and mystical contemplation, most notably in her essay Il cielo mistico (The Mystic Heaven). She saw the rational contemplation of God as a complement to prayer and contemplation of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Antoine Lavoisier (1743–1794):  He was considered the "father of modern chemistry". He is known for his discovery of oxygen's role in combustion, developing chemical nomenclature, developing a preliminary periodic table of elements, and the law of conservation of mass. He invented the basic notation, like H2O that have been used ever since. He was a personal friend of Benjamin Franklin, and did experiments in electricity.


He was a Catholic and defender of scripture.
